TEEM (Theological Education for Emerging Ministries)

The TEEM program provides alternative preparation for those who will provide pastoral ministry in emerging ministry contexts throughout the church. The TEEM program at LSPS is focused on preparing leaders for cross-cultural Hispanic ministries. Candidates for the TEEM program are nominated by their synods and approved by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). The TEEM program consists of 3-4 days of intensive courses 4 times per year in Austin, TX while the student is immersed in ministry throughout the course of the program.
